Double Espresso Bock A Continental Breakfast Lager brewed with European Malt, Hops and locally roasted <i>gimme!</i> coffee. It is fermented with a German Lager Yeast and then, just before bottling, freshly pulled espresso shots are added at an alarming rate. Enjoy the deep dark color, intense aroma, assertive flavors of mocha and toast, and brisk but smooth finish.

    Pours a clear, but very dark ruby brown, black from a distance. Heavily carbonated, but the head fades completely and quickly. The flavor is a little like cola with a sweet caramelly maltiness. There’s a definite coffee flavor and aroma, especially early on, but it tastes a little on the stale side.

    Bottle 960, Released June 07. Pours dark mahogany, thin tan head that dies down to random thin whisps. Aroma is all about the coffee, tons of creamy espresso, dark roast, and some milk chocolate. Flavor starts with some biting roasty bitterness, followed by strong roasty and creamy espresso, some underlying dark chocolate and molasses, and some toasted nuttiness finishes it out. Could very well have been a good doppelbock base beer, but all the espresso makes it seem much more porterish or even baltic porterish than doppelbock. Worth trying, but don't expect it to be like any traditional doppelbock you've had.
